Great work and reply. THX THX.
Can't argue with the science behind it.
I'd already suggested that trying to have the same color for both backgrounds was probably not the way to go.
I'm still less . . . blessed . . . with the mere bolded emphasis. I have a personal paradoxical response to it. In some respects the mass of almost
white text is a bit much on my eyes. And in others, mystifyingly paradoxically, it kind of fails to be distinctive enough to stand out in a way that
says HERE'S THE ANSWER
(that I seek) vs here's the rest of the non-answer text.
I just don't find the mere bolded bright white or off white text a sufficient emphasis for the effect I"m seeking. I have found PERSONALLY that
color coding text for various purposes is a kind of unconscious quickly channeling feature in reading particularly online masses of text that saves
time, frustration in seeking etc. all rather automatically, comfortably and agreeably. I really LIKE that.
MANY others report to me liking that, too. I realize NOT all are . . . thrilled, with such a functional thing. LOL.
It seems to me, in light of your post and research, that we'd do well to ask for default colors for both backgrounds to be embedded in the software
Would you please be willing to come up with a handful of color numbers that would accomplish my two goals?
1. Colors which provide an emphasis but are not startlingly garish due to their tooo high contrast? I recognize that's a bit of a paradoxical
oxymoron. It IS A FUNCTIONAL ONE, to me and to many. I consider the 6699FF blue I use in my mini-profile to be such a color.
2. Colors which are highest contrast for maximum emphasis.
Personally, I'd also love the option for a near black navy blue background like my mini-profile, too. Not sure how easy it would be to get that
To me, the two greens below this post writing window are examples of both 1. & 2. above that I'm seeking. The non garish one has, imho, high enough
contrast to be an emphasis without screaming at the reader.
Anyway--THX BIG. I hope we can work together to polish this issue off in the best way to give the most readers the best options.
